Hornchurch ‘have to keep working hard’
McFarlane: It’s another tough game
Hornchurch manager Jimmy McFarlane wants his men to keep working hard as they bid to overhaul Billericay in the Ryman Premier Division title race.
Urchins closed to within four points of the top after winning their game in hand in midweek.
And they welcome Met Police to Bridge Avenue today (Saturday), as Billericay visit Kingstonian.
McFarlane said: “I’ve only been able to see Met Police play once this year, for one reason or another, but it will be another tough game.

Successive wins have reignited Hornchurch’s title hopes, after a run of three defeats in four had seen them fall off the pace.
And McFarlane will have a full squad available tomorrow, with Leon McKenzie over a virus and captain Elliot Styles having completed a suspension.
He added: “We’ve had a poor run, especially if you’re trying to win the league. But we’ve got three or four weeks to go.
“The play-offs can be a bit of a lottery and we’re trying to avoid that. If you come into a bit of form that weekend you can go up. Tonbridge came from nowhere last year and went up.
“But hopefully we’ll be listening out for Billericay’s result on the last day.”
